Just ok. Clean place and once had good service. Came in with friends for lunch on Xmas eve, not crowded. Ordered at counter, paid and sat down. 2 of our group got food right away, not me. Waiting. 4th friend joined us, asked for his...usual from his favorite waitress, it came. Not mine, I asked, she said she’d check . No food. Friends eating (as they should - no one wants cold wings). No food for me. Finally I went to counter and again asked - about 5 min later food arrived. Zero apology. Poor attitude. (I had pre paid too and tipped about 20-25%). Wings average, onion rings below average. Clean bathrooms however and plenty of TVs. Better places in town.More

Wings are not that great. The sauces leave a lot to be desired, tastes are not close to what you’re looking forward to, swing and a miss in my opinion. Tough to get the good events on a TV.

I have a mixed review. Since our last visit, the menu has changed to add some "Mexican food" items. I decided to try the chicken taco meal, roasted cauliflower appetizer, and strawberry cheesecake. I was impressed with the appetizer - very nice size and good...seasoning. We did not care for the sauce served with the cauliflower - just a personal preference. The chicken tacos, corn on the cob, and cheesecake were very good and I would order them again. However the rice and beans served with the taco meal really brings down this review. They tasted like unseasoned and cold white rice and mashed brown beans. No salt/pepper/flavor of any kind. It was just disappointing when comparing them to the rest of the food we ordered. Just a heads up - maybe stick to the menu items you know!More

We use to love Cold Spot and frequent it. This last time we went it took longer than usual and the food wasn’t as good. The wings were not as crispy as we like. Hope it was just an off day.

This is a sports bar and that is the atmosphere. Lots of TVs with variety of sports shows. We ordered a couple of sandwiches (bean burger and greek flatbread). The sandwiches were very good.....unfortunately, no chips with our pickle. For the price ($7. each) a...few chips could be thrown into the basket. I also got a Long Island iced tea.......I got more ice than liquid and the beverage did not taste as though it had all of the appropriate ingredients. For its price ($8.) it should have all of the ingredients. Waitress was fine....she's just learning. It was our first time at this restaurant......the food was good which makes me believe I'll get sandwiches to go in the future......or maybe I'll trust that the bartender will ensure that my drink in the future has the appropriate ingredients.More

Stopped in a few times on weekends while in the area hiking or fishing. Like the atmosphere...relaxing and clean. Staff is friendly (though should probably spend less time outside on the deck smoking.) Good bar food. My only complaint is being charged $1 extra for...a small container of dipping sauce for appetizers like chicken tenders. Should be included for the price. Our tab this last trip for 3 apps (3 sauces) and 3 beers was a little steep.More

It's been many years since I've visited here since I've relocated out of state. New building due to previous fire. Seems to have same menu for the most part. Tried several craft beers, which were very good. Food was good. Would visit again.

Went for lunch with 5 others. Very quick service. I got a cheeseburger and onion rings and both were excellent. Others got wings (which appears to be their specialty) and wraps. Everyone was very satisfied with their food. All lunch meals included a drink and...your choice of fries. chips or onion rings for $9. Lots of TV's. Would be great place to watch sports, eat and drink some beer. Will definitely go back!More

This is one of my favorite restaurants, I have probably been here over 100 times in the last several years. I like the wings, the price is reasonable, and I like the local atmosphere. All in all, the food is not bad. I will come...many times more in the future. But please, I beg the owners to go back to how it was a few years and drop the table service. Everyone I have every talked to liked it better how it was. walk up and pay and order your food, get sofa refills when you want, go to the bar and get a beer when you want, leave when you want. Now the service is slow, I'm always waiting for my check, and always just wanting to go to the bar to get a drink myself. With that said, I like this place and highly recommend!More
